Happy Hour Art Open Studio

Spring tree –acrylic painting

Each month the studio offers creative classes starting at $35 a person that are open to the public.
These are a BYO beverage/snack event.
You will find a current listing of the classes on the Artworks Studio Facebook page. I also email a newsletter each month with the current list of class offerings.
Past classes have included techniques like glass tile mosaics, mixed media canvas art and acrylic canvas painting.
Seating in the studio is limited to 10 people.
You may register by calling the studio at (712)775-2035 and having your credit card handy. You can also mail a check to Artworks Studio PO Box 74 Carroll, Iowa 51401 or just stop by the studio at 512 N Adams Street in Carroll, Iowa. Participants who pre-pay are guaranteed a spot in the class. Text or Facebook message reservations may get over looked and you might not get in the class.

Happy Hour Art Private Parties
If you are looking for something fun and different to do with your friends consider a Happy Hour Art Private Party.
To book a private party you must have a minimum of 6 people. The studio can accommodate up to 18 people comfortably.
You are welcome to bring your own food/drink into the studio.
I supply everything you need to paint the picture from aprons to canvas to brushes and paint. (I do not provide seating if it's in a private home)

Start times are as follows:
Mondays - 6:00PM
Tuesdays 7:00 PM
Thursdays 7:00 PM
Fridays 6:00PM
Saturdays- after 1:00 PM
Paintings take anywhere from 2-3 hours depending on the group and the painting.

I am happy to design something just for you.
If you want to host the party in your home it's important to keep in mind seating- if you are setting up card tables that would seat 4 people comfortably for eating then it will seat 2 comfortably for painting. Lighting is also very important to consider as is the floor and a sink close at hand for clean-up. We use acrylic paint which will stain floors and clothing if not handled properly. I do not take responsibility for any paint that gets on floors, walls or any other surface in a private home.

Happy Hour Art Fundrasiers

Fund Raising Events:
I am happy to help your organization with a unique and fun way to generate funds for your organization.

When booking a fundraiser you are responsible for securing a venue to have the painting party. I will show up with paints, canvas, aprons, brushes and all other support materials to complete the project.

I will help promote your event on my Facebook page and in my monthly Happy Hour Art Newsletter.
Fundraising events are $40 per person and I give back $10 from every fee collected back to your organization.
